During August, Killens allowed buyers back into their auction rooms at Rookery Farm for their sales and many were pleased to be able to return. All sales are continuing to be staged online however ensuring maximum coverage.
At their September Antiques sale, Killens saw strong interest interest for the 700 lots on offer with some excellent prices achieved. Items selling to advantage included silver and jewellery which were keenly sought. Watches of all types and ages were in demand with a ‘Timor’ wristwatch selling for £700, a Waltham demi hunter pocket watch £520 and a yellow metal Tissot wristwatch £440.
With the auction rooms now fully open, Killens are now conducting valuations at the auction rooms with no need for an appointment five days a week and carrying out free home visits. It is also possible to view future auctions on viewing days and attend sales. Precautions are being implemented with all attendees required to wear face coverings, social distance, follow the one way system, sign in and sanitise.
All sales are now held online with every lot illustrated and sold with live internet bidding and the team at the auction rooms has increased in size with the appointment of a dedicated and experienced photographer.
